Paraguayan Cornbread - Sopa Paraguaya

Recipe by Olha

This cheese-laden loaf is boldly spiced, and in Paraguay it often accompanies a hearty beef soup. Every slice is peppered with moist corn kernels.

Very good recipe, the cornbread was so moist! I added a can of fire-roasted diced green chiles (drained), and did half sharp cheddar and half monterey jack cheese. I also used frozen corn (defrosted) instead of canned corn. Everyone loved it, and asked for the recipe.
